White bread new and exciting in the 14th century. Only the nobility could afford it. The peasantry Ate a dark, dense, chewy loaf that was coarse enough to grind down molars. The gentry dined on, rich, sumptuous bread made with white flour, spices, and sweetness. White bread was available for others, but it lacked the artistry and elegance of that made in the manors.
This was the bread of nobility and originally unique to York, England as a gift for Richard the III on his visit to that city in 1482. After 1595, the mayor of York ordered bakers to make this bread every Friday morning.
